Privacy Policy

Introduction

This Privacy Policy describes the categories of your data that we process, the modality and purposes for which we collect them, the situations in which we transfer and/or disclose personal data and various rights and options you have in this respect. At the same time, our Privacy Policy details the manner in which we process personal data in the management of the relationship with platform users.

Please also check our Terms and Conditions available at https://wizerz.com/terms-and-conditions/ and the Cookie Policy at https://wizerz.com/cookie-policy/ explaining the use of cookies/other web location devices through our platform.

Our platform can be used by entering personal data. As regards the manner in which the platform operates and the personal data are accessed by the persons using the platform, the operating mechanism is described below.

There are three types of users on our platform: potential candidates, recruiters (who register candidates on the platform) and companies interested to hire potential candidates.

Therefore, on the platform, recruiters will propose the creation of accounts for natural persons, by creating a profile. These accounts will contain a link to the LinkedIn page of a potential candidate and a summary description in the form of answers to a series of predetermined questions, which provide information about the preferred field/field of activity, salary expectations, availability to change the field of activity, languages and technical skills. In order for a recruiter to create such a profile on the platform, the recruiter must obtain the prior consent of the potential candidate.

After the consent is obtained and the candidate profile is created on the platform, the candidate receives from the platform an e-mail containing the login credentials. Therefore, following this e-mail, the candidate must activate his/her account and from this moment the link to his/her LinkedIn profile and the answers to questions become visible for the platform Clients (companies looking for candidates) approved by the Candidate.

When personal data are collected via the platform (such as: surname, first name, e-mail address, personal data from CVs, information from LinkedIn profiles), they are collected as the interested person provides such data to the platform voluntarily. Data such as personal data found in CVs are not used by the platform, but only provided to interested persons via the platform.

After the activation of his/her account, the candidate has full access to the platform and can delete, add or modify information in his/her account.

As a rule, Wizerz collects and processes the data that the platform users choose to provide freely. The privacy policy of the Wizerz platform applies to any visitor/user of the platform, irrespective whether he/she has an account on the Wizerz platform or not.

To the extent that you do not wish your personal data to be processed by Wizerz, we advise you not to access the platform and not to register on the platform.
